Identifying Sincere Corporate Citizens While Job Searching

A colleague asked “How can I tell if a workplace is genuinely committed to being a good corporate citizen when I’m looking for a job?” And according to Glassdoor and FairyGodBoss surveys, a diverse workplace is one of the main factors potential employees now take into account when considering a job.

So it’s a great question, but not easily answered. There’s a lot of lip service paid to diversity, equity and inclusion right now in the wake of Black Lives Matter and Pride Month. As prospective employees of these concerns, how can you tell if a company’s really committed to diverse and equitable hiring; and once inside, an inclusive culture? How can you parse this out as you look?

We’ve asked Aparna Rae, principal consultant at Moving Beyond, to talk about this on July 9 at our weekly job search sessions, Hangout Habits . In the meantime, here’s some resources and tools for you to consider as you look.
